think that that's the environment which we've been in. why are they so low? it's not because there's so much liquidity. it's because there's a lot of fear. the fed is beginning its tapering program but yet this flood of fears has overwhelmed the fed's withdrawal of some of its monthly stimulus. so i think that if we do see yields go too much lower, it's all a question of why, and i think really the reason now is because you'd see a spike in fear, and that wouldn't be a good thing, but again it's the type of thing i think you can just sort of look through and actually think that maybe in a month from now we're going to see that this is actually -- we're on to the next story. >> rates are low because there's no demand for credit. >> i continue to think that rates are low. we've seen this rally in rates this year, 40 bits in the ten-year in two months because investors really are concerned about some sort of repricing of risk and this happened two weeks after the fed tapered. that's not a coincidence. >> there's no demand for credit on the consumer side. >> if you actually look at the cons

is that these policymakers are making decision necessary a very different growth environment that we've seen in many, many years. people are talking about how the economy is slow and is burdened with debt. there were a lot of questions about the financial sector and the health of it. and the government really doesn't have the same levers that past administrations have had in order to try to stimulate growth. so this is a back drop that they are facing at this time. the big question that people are have here going into this congress is just how will the slowing economy play with those reforms? the government has made big announcements at the end of the last week that we were going to make quite dramatic changes in a chinese contest. but we haven't really seen them walk the talk. that's what investors are going to want to see. they're going to want to see serious efforts in progress for the -- for not only the policies themselves, but also the pace of change. >> thanks so much, eunice. we'll watch for that later on this week. now, the u.s. is bracing for another massive late winter snowstorm, this time taki

that creates an environment where investment and innovation and competition can thrive, the american people benefit. we've seen it in the wireless industry, we're seeing it in the broadband industry and the story of the media marketplace over the last 40 years since we last adopted our media rules has been one where competition has flourished. i think that's something the fcc would do well to remember when it steps into this marketplace. >> i'll tell you, sir, i mean i'm glad you're there and you're doing the lord's work. but whether it's broadband issues or the old fairness doctrine, the fcc is on the wrong side of every issue. you talk about innovation and entrepreneurship, you're right, god bless. the fcc on the wrong side, the ftc, all these independent agencies. i say get rid of them. >> part of the frustration that you have with agency comes into sharp relief when it comes to the media because we do have a core first amendment freedom. so when you combine the way that the study was created with that core fcc freedom -- first amendment freedom, i think people do rightly get concerned.
school wellness guidelines to help build healthier learning environments for our kids. and as part of this effort, we'll be eliminating advertisements for unhealthy food and beverages in our schools. because i think we can all agree that our classrooms should be healthy place where is kids are no, ma'am bombard eed for ads f junk food. our second announcement focuses on school breakfast. i cannot possibly overstate how important this is. right now millions of children in this country are showing up to school hungry every day. and that's why we're expanding our school breakfast program, ensuring that nearly 9 million kids in 2,000 schools start their day with a nutritious breakfast. >> joining me now, chef and owner of kraft restaurants. tom, we have come such a long way, when you consider what michelle obama has been campaigning for. >> pretty much dent kept at bay now for other children. the message is definitely getting across. the importance of school breakfast breakfasts, it really gets them learning. there was a study done recently that kids that get breakfast, not before the
environment, policies are changing in this country in terms of the consumption of food. the importance of feeding kids a healthy breakfast. michaela, i'm not sure if you know this. let me tell you this. children who consume a healthy breakfast and who are physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes a day perform higher on mathematical tests up to 17% higher. they excel in reading. in many cases, they read at a great level higher. we call that the learning connection. the impact that eating healthy and being physically active has on performance, behavior, attendance. so my response back to you is, let's make sure we find ways for kids to be active before, during, and after the school day. as parents, it is our responsibility to make sure we are talking to our school administrators. we are making sure our kids are not going hungry when they walk into the school building and much of what the first lady is doing is making sure the kids get the proper nutrients that they can get in the school building at a minimum. >> alexis glick, thank you so much for this. you can hear the passion in h
environment with you. what have you told the court in this plea, this desperate plea, to keep your 6-year-old granddaughter? >> i've told them that he's a convicted felon, i've told them that he offered her to me for sale. during a phone conversation with him. he said when he was in tacoma holding facility, immigration holding facility prior to his deportation, he said that he would sign her over to me if i paid for immigration attorney to keep him here in the united states. i told the court that it was equivalent to human trafficking, and that with her emotional issues, that it was the wrong thing to do to send her, essentially, to another world that she doesn't know. >> what is your worst fear here? listen, we do know that people with felony convictions in many cases, obviously, are allowed to keep their children. a conviction does not mean that you are not going to be able to care for that child, particularly if it's not an offense against that child, but what is your worst fear as her grand mom knowing that in the end she could end up there with this man? >> if, you know, i believe ev
it better environment for private investment and international energy agency's have estimated that it is in the trillions of dollars, the infrastructure investment, to man come in to develop our resources of energy in the u.s.. do investors look at president obama's infrastructure proposal with any degree of belief or is it something that they say it has been proposed, we will write it off? are looking at all of these intersections all of the time. about hownking a lot frompolicy in washington, the fed to defense spending, affect the markets? , you your hope and prayer are the queen of a higher oil price and you got it right. does it drive higher here? libya -- their production is out. if they cannot get the barrels back on, we will be in a higher priced situation. you need to watch the iraqi elections coming up in april. one thing to watch in the downside is the iranian nuclear negotiation. to the the risks are upside in terms of geopolitics. >> i want to bring it back to janet yellen testifying later today. what do you expect to hear from her that might move the markets? >>
their overall political environment is favoring republicans. i think that has to do with the residue and hangover of all the health care controversies that battled the administration. we're still seeing some of the effects of that. the other thing in the republicans' favor is just the overall map when they're going to be in alaska, even in a state like north carolina, that ends up helping republicans, but is it the arizona that veto pointed out, even though it was vetoed, we've seen the republican party trip up on social issues, whether it was on that, whether it's on gay marriage, whether it's talking about contraception, and democrats want to be able to exploit that. i'm not sure that's necessarily going to be that silver bullet come 2014 in the mid terms, but that's what they want. >> let's talk about the senate here. we have a list of some of the republicans mentioned already. cory gardner, but bill cassidy, steve danes, tomorrow -- tom cotton. >> they have a lot of paths to pick up those senate seats, but those you just mentioned, in 2012, they didn't have a good track record. t
myself in these young men. and the only difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. >> the new initiative that the president is launching is called my brother's keeper. founations and businesses that now pledge to donate $200 million over five years to aid young men of color. much more on that amount of money and whether it's significant or not with tavis smily in a few minutes. but don lemon was in the room as the president spoke. don, what more did the president say? he usually doesn't get so personal. he's rather insulated and rather removed. this was a very different man we saw today. >> he's been criticized at times and it was a very different man we saw today. very emotional man. he was very candid. and many said, you know what, it's about time. today, quite frankly, many will say that barack obama became the black president today. he became a president who is african-american, obviously, but he became the person that many people wanted him to be. many of those who criticized him. what they wanted to hear from him. they wanted him to say so
thoughts about the investing environment right now. are these sectors the ones that are responsible for the profits? >> a big chunk of it. another piece of the equation is -- there was not , lot of bad weather last year so the claims they faced should be lower. thank you so much. we appreciate that look into berkshire hathaway. we are a few minutes from the opening bell. we have your top 10 traits. keep it right here on "in the loop." ♪ >> will come back. you are "in the loop." i am alix steel. bloomberg television is on the markets. scarlet fu has the latest. >> durable goods came in a little bit better than anticipated. the nasdaq futures are still up slightly. the s&p rose above its closing high but it was unable to hold onto that game yesterday -- gain yesterday. is still stronger, but cutting off its earlier level. imf put out a statement -- the ukraine notified the imf and the imf is ready to respond. we will continue to monitor that story as well. we are on the markets again in 30 minutes. >> let's count down to the open with your top 10 stocks. scarlet stays with us and ol
myself in these young men. i grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving. when i was their age, i was a lot like them. i didn't have a dad in the house. i was angry about it even though i didn't necessarily realize it at the time. i made bad choices. i got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. groups that have had the odds stacked against them in unique ways that require unique solutions. groups have seen fewer opportunities that have spanned generations. the worst part is, we have become numb to these statistics. we're not surprised by them. we take them as the norm. we assume this is an inevitable part of american life instead of the outrage that it is. the continuing struggles of boys and young men are falling by the wayside, dropping out, involved in negative behavior. we need to change the statistics, not just for the sake of the young men and boys but for the sake of america's future. that's why in the aftermath of the trayvon martin verdict, with all the emotions and controversy, i spoke about the need to bolster and reinforce our yo
cigarette how well the market did in an environment that's been as anti-business as i have ever seen in my lifetime and i think that what you were just saying is absolutely true. i see this more as a spring that's wound up and ready to be unleashed. imagine where we would be if we had a president that was reaganesque that freed up capital, ended up launching new businesses for a new world. so all of that can very well happen and the fact is it can't get any worse in the last five years. >> it's coming, jack. one of the signals. stock market is telling you, the political situation, policy situation they are talking flat taxes now, they are going shut down this obamacare, it's coming jack. keep the faith. thanks to boston you gentlemen. now it was five years ago that the tea party was born. will that movement rebond with the rest of the gop and hand republicans control of the senate in november? we'll talk about that next with our political panel. please stay with us. turn aroun♪ ♪ every now and then i get a little bit hungry ♪ ♪ and there's nothing really good around ♪ ♪ turn ar

that someone sees a gun on to how can we do this being least disruptive in a learning environment. and there's a lot of work to be done that lies ahead of us. >> there's one estimate that that work's going to cost over $2 million including retraining of police officers involved but now they're going to have to distinguish between good guns and bad guns on campus. where before all guns were bad on campus. greg, it seems to me that you might have some better educational purposes for that $2 million. >> well, yeah. and i think as a lot of letter writers have pointed out, i don't know nothing about guns, and i shouldn't have one. but with nine hours' training i too can become a hobbyist police officer and be authorized to bring a gun on campus and to use it according to my nine hours of training. i don't want vigilantes protecting me in my classroom. i think vigilante justice is best practiced at home. and i have nothing against it. just no, thanks, i don't need them to have guns if they're not trained officers of the law or have extensive experience. and people around them, professionals who wi
dakota and other states are doing. you create a good environment for the economy to grow. >> that's a great contrast, this red state contrast. sam brownback in kansas, mary fallin in oklahoma, john casic in ohio. they're limiting government, reforming programs, lowering tax rates to get better investment in companies. what's so hard about this? john f. kennedy did it 50 years ago. ronald reagan about it 30 years ago. >> they believe so much in central government, central economic planning. they believe it's unfair for people to be making a lot of money when the aspiration of every american should be to make more money, get on that ladder of opportunity. it's so frustrating, larry, to be on the inside and working with these people when they don't think debt matters. the president is increasing debt, almost doubling it over the next ten or 12 years. it's incredible, given the fact that he's amassed more debt as a president than all the presidents before him combined if you take it through the rest of his administration. >> i think if the economy would grow with fresh incentives and
to the russian people consuming this in that controlled news environment, we're not saying that if you're buying the putin view of this, you know, that that's just -- you're just being dumb. i mean, there's a lot of ways in which he presents this that can sound reasonable if you hear nothing else. >> absolutely. and this has been one of the most amazing things of the putin project since he's come to power. he's created this kind of alternate reality. at first he did it domestically. when you're in russia, it's incredibly. the talk of democracy, the posters on the streets, the people out at also ryes, the lines at election booths. these are things that the kremlin orchestrates very, very carefully. this is the first time he's moved beyond his borders to do it there. so this is a very controlled campaign. it's a theatre. >> james welcome back to the show. thanks for joining us again. >>> coming up, vladimir putin's political machine. and later, breaking news from texas. wendy davis has become the first woman since anne richards to win a primary for governor of texas. people don't have to think abo
. are you arguing at this point when you look at the environment, technology, what we're up against, there isn't really a logical place for federalism here because of what you just mentioned? >> no, there's certainly a logical place and the states can easily go beyond what the federal government is requiring, and they are. you've had the northeastern states that entered into a compact on greenhouse gases and do some carbon trading, so there's a lot the states can and will do, but bottom line, these are issues that affect all americans, actually, they affect the world, and we need to be taking action on them. the world's not going to end tomorrow. nobody says that, but i think anyone who has been outside in the last year understands that things are changing. i mean, the world has changed since it was formed, but what we're putting into the atmosphere and the way we're changing land use is having an impact, making these things happen faster and be more severe, and we've got to slow them down to start to anticipate what we're going to have to deal with. >> and what do you say to republ
for the rest of this year. you know, i've worked in education, environment, science research, policy, and civil liberties, and, oh, voting procedures. a number of things over the, well, now nearly two decades. i'm in my 16th year, i guess. so i could point to a number of those things. but i do stand by that statement, that the congress is the greatest instrument. doesn't always work perfectly, there are days when it hardly works at all, but it is a great instrument for justice and human welfare. >> yeah, and i understand that you feel that way, and i think that probably comes from your pride of office and the hard work you do, but the composition congress has changed a lot, as we mentioned, "the times" and others focus on the fact when you depart, only one scientist will be left, there are a lot fewer veterans than there used to be, there's a lot more upper, upper incomes, anyone stationed in life and previous job or role or training isn't the only thing you can say about them. i do think it's fair to say that the institution has changed in the aggregate of who's in it, and i don't think it's a
